Iron deficiency is one of the most common nutrition problems in the world mainly affecting women and young children. If your iron or haemoglobin count is low, this often results in a lack of energy which may prevent you from performing everyday tasks well. A lack of iron can also lower your immunity and leave you prone to many infections.
Red meat is one of the best sources of iron and its iron is well absorbed by the body, being in the form of haem iron.
Wholegrain cereals, some vegetables, legumes, nuts and eggs also carry much iron, but it is non-haem iron and not as well absorbed as that from meat. The trick is to eat a variety of foods from both haem and non-haem sources everyday to ensure that you are getting enough iron.
Adding a glass of orange juice or some tomato or capsicum to a salad filling in a Bürgen® Bread sandwich may help enhance iron absorption in the meal.

Women undergo many changes throughout their lives that place huge strains on their bodies - including pregnancy and menopause - so it is important for you to maintain good health and longevity with a nutritious eating plan, exercise, and as stress free a lifestyle as possible.
